Ancient Peru NA43 DNA

Samples NA39-50 were obtained from pre-Columbian Chachapoyan and Chachapoya-Inca remains dating between 1000 and 1500 AD. They were recovered from the site Laguna de los Condores in northeastern Peru. Authors had used bone samples for DNA analysis. I converted the raw data of NA43 sample into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found this ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload this to GEDMatch. However, complete SNPs are available for download.

Ancient Bulgaria K8 DNA

Authors had sequenced the DNA from human tooth found in the Yakimova Mogila Tumulus, which dates to the Iron Age (450-400 BC), near Krushare, Bulgaria. An aristocratic inhumation burial containing rich grave goods was excavated in 2008. A molar from one individual, probably male, was used for DNA analysis. I converted the raw data of this K8 sample into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found this ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload this to GEDMatch. However, complete SNPs and the filtered SNPs are available for download.

Ancient Bronze Age M4 DNA

DNA from an ancient hair sample obtained from the Borum Eshøj Bronze Age burial in Denmark. The burial comprised three individuals in oak coffins, commonly referred to as the woman,• ”the young man,• and the old man.• The M4 sample is from the latter. The site was excavated in 1871-1875 and the coffins dated to c.1350 BC. I converted the M4 raw data into formats familiar to genetic genealogists (or genotyped). I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found the ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload to GEDMatch.

Ancient Hungarian Neolithic genome - KO1

The Great Hungarian Plain was a crossroads of cultural transformations that have shaped European prehistory. The authors had analysed a 5,000-year transect of human genomes, sampled from petrous bones giving consistently excellent endogenous DNA yields, from 13 Hungarian Neolithic, Copper, Bronze and Iron Age burials including two to high (~22 × ) and seven to ~1 × coverage, to investigate the impact of these on Europe’s genetic landscape. I converted the raw data of KO1 from Tiszaszőlős-Domaháza site in Hungary into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry and upload to GEDMatch as kit# F999931.

Ancient Hungarian Copper age genome - CO1

The Great Hungarian Plain was a crossroads of cultural transformations that have shaped European prehistory. The authors had analysed a 5,000-year transect of human genomes, sampled from petrous bones giving consistently excellent endogenous DNA yields, from 13 Hungarian Neolithic, Copper, Bronze and Iron Age burials including two to high (~22 × ) and seven to ~1 × coverage, to investigate the impact of these on Europe’s genetic landscape. I converted the raw data of CO1 from Apc-Berekalja I. site in Hungary into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry and upload to GEDMatch as kit# F999930.
